Family Fun & Games at the Waterworks Museum

Tuesday Open Days at The Waterworks Museum

A trip to the Waterworks Museum on a Tuesday is a different experience for visitors.

Whilst only a few of the Museum’s exbibits will be in operation, this is the Engineers’ Working Day when visitors can see the collection being maintained and our Volunteers have more time to engage with visitors and share their passion.

There are stewards available to take visitors around the Museum (please ask at reception on arrival), but most visitors seem to prefer to self navigate and talk to the Volunteers at their own pace.

During term time, visitors are also likely see a class of school children in our Visitor Centre benefitting from our free education service.  A Tuesday is also a good time for visitors who prefer to avoid the loud noises of working machinery.

Please note:
Only powered pumps and engines are in operation a Tuesday (I.e. not the historic steam, hot-air, oil or gas engines and pumps).
Children’s Heritage Water Park is only open between April and October.

The Waterworks Museum – Hereford is one of Herefordshire’s leading visitor attractions with something for all ages.  Children enjoy using hands on exhibits, including in the unique Heritage Water Park, and the museum has a permanent exhibition to Hereford in WW2.  Every exhibit is waiting to tell a story.

Visitors can see the UK’s widest range of working pumps and engines from across Herefordshire, neighbouring counties and Wales, most of which are the last working examples of their type.  Heritage engineering at its best – and wholly run by volunteers.
